DoD Operational Energy Plan is a fizzle

June 17, 2011

Six months late, the Department of Defense delivered its Operational Energy Plan.  Although applauded by some environmentalists, the plan has been widely panned as a bumper sticker approach devoid of details.    The National Journal tried to be supportive, calling it a “sweeping energy strategy,” but then gave away their real feelings by summing it up thusly:  “Right now, the energy strategy consists of a new office, a new way of thinking about energy, and a three-point plan laid out in an 11-point memo that’s full of slogans but short on specifics”

The DoD’s own Dan Nolan’s DOD Energy Blog ripped the plan, saying it landed “with all the impact of a low velocity marshmallow.”    Read the whole post, then go to the home page and read their dissections of the individual service plans.
